Melissa and Michaels Vintage Vegan Wedding
Melissa and Michael opted for the full wedding planning package. They wanted everything vegan and a vintage theme running throughout. With only seven months till their wedding date the venue search began immediately. I proposed several venues and we reduced that down to two and then decided to use them both, adding a surprise element for guests. After the wedding ceremony at St Georges Hall, Melissa and Michael drove off in a vintage wedding car whilst I gathered guests on the coach and headed to the first surprise venue.
The first venue was Coast, a beautiful bistro in the heart of Woolton village, Liverpool. The bistro’s décor was quirky and suited the wedding theme so only required a few extra touches. Guests were greeted with homemade vegan canapes and a glass of bubbly. I announced Melissa and Michael into the room, and they began speeches. Guests were left enjoying themselves in the bistro, whilst I headed to set up the evening venue. The evening venue had large round tables to which I added white chair covers with a hessian sash and table covers with matching hessian runners. The florist arrived with fresh flowers for the table centres. These were placed in a vintage watering can on top of a tree trunk. There were smaller tables around the edge, they were decorated using artificial grass cuttings and candles to keep inline with the vegan theme.
As a personal touch, we placed seeds in a sachet as wedding favours. This was to symbolise veganism and promote our newlyweds way of life. Once the finishing touches were complete, I directed guests to the final venue.They were greeted with an arrival drink and then asked to write a short message on the grooms guitar, as this was used to replace a guest book as another quirky feature. Guests were then able to tuck into the delicious vegan buffet, followed by cutting of the cake and the first dance!
